Undercliffe, Turella Reserve, motorway stack

This controversial exhaust stack for M5 motorway tunnel is located in Turrella Reserve at Undercliffe, beside Wolli Creek. It's quite an ugly structure on the skyline but with the fading light at dusk, even the ugliest structures can sometimes look good. The tall apartment blocks at nearby Wolli Creek can be seen in the distance.


  1. I dont see the stack as being any uglier than the apartment blocks, Jim. In fact, the blocks will fall into disrepair much earlier than the stack.

  2. Yeah, it's not the ugliest stack I've ever seen Julie, but amongst the bushland it certainly sticks out.

  3. Very nice shot, those sunsets can make the most austere structures soften under its glow.

  4. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Its still ugly.


Thanks for visiting my blog. Please leave me a message. Jim.
